If you've got the swag, how about a pic of you in it, posted up here?

Since he has a rest day, somebody here with his number could message him to look in tomorrow, perhaps without warning him? . I would think that he'd be able to get online for that.

I'll post up a puc when I get home.
This is my setup when I watch the dakar on the TV!

And every day is Lyndon day, even at work! =)

But this is the absolute deepest pool of talent for cross country racing there is. These aren't just people who are good at it, they are the people who are best in the world at going a long distance across unknown terrain in a short time. Sure, there are some everyday Joe's at the back of the pack, but they struggle even to get through a stage. The middle of the pack is made up of people who live and breathe riding motorcycles- look at Patrick Beaule, who is no average rider by any means! I imagine anyone who has ridden with Pat will be happy to inform you he doesn't lounge around anywhere, and I'm positive he hasn't been.

So, people can say something like "he lucked into it" and of course they will be, in some measured way, correct. But we make our own luck in life, and there are about 150 other folks that had a similar chance today. Eight of them capitalized on that chance better than Lyndon.

In the biggest pond full of the biggest sharks, Lyndon has been proving himself more than capable day after day. And today, when the stars aligned, he was positioned to take advantage AND HE DID. No one, not even the ASO, can strip him of what we know happened.

F#ckin' Brilliant result! Legendary!

Now, to make sure it doesn't go to his head, and he keeps racing the exact same race he has been!

Lyndon when you finish in the top 10, stick around for the interviews. Team Euro was looking for you.

An amazing interview and a great day. That is one of the most brilliant results I have seen in Dakar, make no mistake that is historic - 2nd Brit to finish in top 10 on a stage in Dakar. Astounding.

What is even sweeter is he did it by being exactly who he is, taking his time whilst being fast to make sure he was doing things right - to the letter. Not getting caught up in the sound of the engine and instead recognising that he was 1km out due to the conditions and then building that into his own roadbook.
